I think 97% of the people who take the LeGrand challenge fail if they have never done a deal before. Ron LeGrand is a great teacher and motivated but he is also a business man and a great salesman too.
Give your marketing time to succeed. Also, get out there and meet other investors at investment clubs and seminars.
I have Ron LeGrand’s Cash Flow System and while it is informative and entertaining, it is by no means to the definitive source of how to make money in real estate investing. I also think Ron makes it seem too easy to get deals.
Sometimes you have to take the info from the course and customize it to your particular needs and the area where you live.
Keep on trucking and you will get there.
P.S., I took Ron’s challenge last year and failed miserably. I focused on trying to do a lease/option deal but in retropect, I think a wholesale deal is the only way you can make the 3K in 30 days.
